Uno’s Garden, By Graeme Base will provide the foundation for continued Inquiry into “Survival” As well as introduce students to a range of critical and creative thinking skills
Overview / Storyline
Uno arrives in the forest on a beautiful day at the very beginning of spring and is greeted by a myriad of beautiful, lush plants and the most fantastic creatures he has ever seen. He likes it so much that he decides to stay there.
Uno's decision spells doom for the plants and the creatures of the forest, including the only completely ordinary Snortlepig.
But Uno is wise and sees the future of his children and their children if someone does not act to stem the consequences of civilisation. So he starts a special garden that does not have the vegetables and flowers of other gardens, but allows his children and grandchildren to have hope for their future.Uno's Garden is a rich story that delivers a powerful message through both its words and pictures. The diversity and detail of the illustrations tells a complex story that provides an excellent starting point for children to start considering their impact on their environment and how this can be positive.
